Cactus’s experienced Project Managers, crews, equipment, labs and partners make sure that your job is completed to your standards. Below are some of the specific services we can provide your company.

  • Construction of slurry walls — creating an engineered barrier in situ to encapsulate any containment from migrating
  • Containment enclosures for odor control and air emissions — Cactus has engineered containment for hazardous materials such as mercaptan vessels, mercaptan contaminated soils and chemical warfare agents such as UX and tabun.
  • Excavation dewatering — this includes managing rainwater, ground water or storm water, communicating into underground utility vaults, open excavations or cable runs using submersible pumps, vacuum trucks and temporary on-site water treatment systems; and then disposing water on-site under the local ordinance or transporting water to a waste water treatment facility.
  • Filter press treating of sludge from digesters or settling ponds — dewatering the sludge with a filter press greatly reduces the volume of materials for management on-site or off-site disposal.
  • Installation and operation of vapor extraction systems — these systems involve in situ remediation techniques, effective for volatile organic compounds in groundwater or underground zones of contamination where excavation in not a viable option.
  • Lagoon stabilization — hazardous and non-hazardous constituents can be solidified in place or pumped and processed through a filter press and transferred back to the lagoon, applied to the land or transported for off-site disposal.
  • Oil/water separators — Cactus routinely inspects and cleans oil/water separators to make sure they are operating properly, oil/water separators filled with sludge that do not allow for phase separation will lead to environmental liabilities when oil “pushes” through the system.
  • Subsurface site Investigations — Cactus can plot a sampling grid, gather samples, perform a soil analysis and report the results on a CAD diagram in the form of a site investigation report to delineate the extent of contamination for clients.
  • Tank farm dismantlement — once tanks have been decontaminated, Cactus can dismantle or demolish tanks for asset recovery.
  • UST/AST removal and abandonment — Cactus’s certified tank experts can remove underground storage tanks or abandon tanks in place depending on site conditions and approval from local agencies.
  • In situ soil stabilization and solidification — Cactus’s can employ in situ chemical treatment, bioremdiation or solidification of contaminated soil where site conditions dictate soil be left in place.
  • Fertilizer acquisition from lagoon remediation — sludges from sludge digesters and many lagoons make great soil nutrients; Cactus has secured land application permits for local agencies to supply fertilizer to foster rich soil conditions while reducing the amount of waste disposed by the client.
  • Transportation and disposal of waste — if in situ or land application is not available, Cactus is able to transport waste using its own fleet of trucks with roll off boxes and dump trucks; Cactus will also ensure liability elimination or reduction by ensuring that waste is disposed of a Cactus’s PART-B permitted TSDF or at a strategic alliance partner facility.
